It sounds like the o in "do" without the d.
But the o alone would make you pronounce it wrong..

For the sake of argument? are you saying there is no choice factor in beliefs?

By what criteria would you decide which is the better choice - to believe in God, or to not believe?
one of my main personal criteria is looking at myself and a situation objectively, a god in the frame is just one voice too many between me.. and myself

I'm acknowledging that many hold that view and that many do not and (hopefully) skirting around it.

How would you describe your spiritual voice when you are in a variety of situations?
I rather have my reality decaf, but what about you?

If we could choose I think utility might be a better measure than objectivity

Well I think we all create our own reality and I like mine warm with a bit of spice . Imagination is a great thing. I experience more reality through poetry than mathematics.

thats cool, I relate in a way, I've been drawn to the subjects of humanities more often, but arent there occasions in which reality begins where our sense of romanticism ends?

I read this earlier today about Olie Linsdell who survived a 150+mph crash during the IoM TT
Quote:
His brother has been told that our sales staff are busy getting “sponsored by God” stickers made, and I think that sums it up perfectly - despite his 155mph crash, and bouncing down the road 140 odd yards, he's here to tell the tale.’
Olie Linsdell thanks fans for support - The official Isle of Man TT 2009 website
It's like what you're talking about but the other way around. Where reality ends and romanticism begins
Sponsored by God - I love it.
